Haha, that picture cracked me up yesterday and it sure cracked me up today. Such an awesome, spot-on picture!
On a different note, shame that Jinro didn't go further, but he's already qual for next since he got to ro16 and he was the only non-korean to adv. from the group stage. And iirc he's in the MLG along with sjow (not sure), and I know for sure they're in the DH Summer tournament so there's still plenty of chances to grab some silverware this summer \o/
Yeah it certainly is, but he's still super successful in Korea!
Seems like both swedes today got pwned (Morrow 1:3 Moonglade)
You really have to rub that one in my face? MorroW's first and fourth game was really good, unlucky in the fourth and maybe it was a bad move to save the larvas for the hydras in the fourth game (which spawned ~15secs too late) but anyway.
Tomorrow's the second day of the code a ro16 in the GSL, I'm not super-psyched but it's still going to be interesting to see Noblesse and Rain. However, those two games will probably clash with the World Cup Semi's tomorrow and I'm more interested in those so I'll prolly run the GSL muted in the background.
TSL 3 Announced! Huge international tournament featuring a lot of the best!
Matches will start on 19th of March. Exact dates will be announced later on.
News, Brackets, Matches: http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/view...opic_id=198668
First round matches:
My personal highlight matches - The highlights amongst a tournament of highlights!
TLO vs Nada
Liquid.Jinro vs Mouz.Morrow
mouz. Hasu vs mouz.Huk
IM.Nestea vs Goody
Also, curious about: Mondragon (who plays vs Zeerax). Idra and some EG guys announced that Mondragon could become an absolute beast internationally after training, and that Mondragon trained a lot in last time, so he might start an amazing comeback!
Idra went as far as saying that Mondragon might easily dominate the foreigner (=non-Korean) scene!
Some guy made a nice German fan banner for the German players

Operating System for SC2? I've no idea if that's what you mean, but it runs smooth on windows 7
Idra won't play against TLO but against coL.Cruncher. I have no idea how Cruncher could get into such a tournament to be honest, he's definitly the player I have heard the fewest about. Can't imagine him standing a chance.
Otherwise, I share your enthusiasm about this tournament, it's so huge and, especially great, with a lot of matches of Koreans vs foreign players!
Moderator message by: blaios = online streaming
Moderator message by: Roflkopt3rOf course there will be streams, but obviously they aren't known yet since not even the exact dates of the matches are known
Omg I just defeated a 4-Gate with 3 Gate Starport, my most happy Protoss-victory ever
You should definitly watch this: Destiny Switches to Terran
Background info: They're talking about TeamLiquid forums (SC/SC2 esports forum) and members in the first minute. Keep watching until the point at 3:30!
For all beginners: This is another video of Destiny: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1UN98vOKuk
It's about the simple idea: Whoever is lower than platinum league, doesn't need to learn any tactics or something of that but ONLY your micro/macro! (micro: controlling your units well to use them to their best effect; macro: ability of building a lot of workers and spedning all ressources to build up huge armies)
This means: In Silver or Gold league it is absolutely unimportant which units you build, whether you scout your opponent well or not, but only that you build enough workers, production buildings and units!
About Kelly not commentating for GOM-TV anymore:
Statement of GOM-TV:

Yesh, but she's going back to Singapore. She didn't want to state the reason why but apparently she and GOMtv agreed not to re-hire her. Hopefully we'll see day9 and tasteless in cA.
However, even if I dislike kelly's accent she always raised some valid points during her commentaries and I honestly disliked to my bones the way the SC2 community treated her. Sure, her accent was annoying, but the amount of trolling and hate she received is really unforgivable from a community.
Obviously she was disliked. But to outright bash her and mock her like the community did (all the way up to the commentators and staff themselves) is nothing I approve of.
Instead of giving her lessons in pronunciation or to give her constructive criticism they mocked her.
Ah well, I hope the new try-outs are either extraordinary or have a flawless accent........
(memes amused me though)
Perhaps some ppl here already know them, the NASL (North American Star League) application videos of the pros!

Today at 19:00 CET it will begin!
Matches for Today (times in CET):
Tyler vs Strelok 19:00
SEn vs Fenix 20:00
FruitDealer vs Thorzain 21:00
Boxer vs Nightend 22:00
Commentators for this evening will be Day9 and Chill.
Quite impressive results so far. Fruitdealer getting totally owned, HasuObs defeating HuK and Jinro losing to Morrow o_O
However, MC vs Ciara was such a one sided massacre xD
Goody vs Nestea on 26th, TLO vs NaDa on 27th - impressive opponents the Germans got there
Collection of Goody images: He's famous for playing mech (Tank-Thor-Hellion) and nothing else, against everyone and always playing 30-minute-matches because he turtles so hard
Also famous for always having long, long production queues (for all noobs: You shouldn't have that, you should always spend all your ressources without queueing up) which are now known as "Goody queues".

I really can't imagine myself watching a starcraft championship game. Seems so... boring lol. I enjoy playing the game (I suck at it though) but watching a championship kinda borders in the pointless area for me.
Another way getting hooked to it is just seeing someone beeing incredibly good and noticing how extremely good pros can be compared to oneself, often in movies:
Just made it to Masters League!
